An Amur tiger who was fostered by another tiger family in 2017 has celebrated her first birthday with her Sumatran brothers and mother.
A party was held at Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Gardens in celebration of all five of the family’s birthdays – which all fall in July – but it marked a particularly significant landmark for Zoya, who moved from Philadelphia Zoo last year.
Zoya’s brothers Eko, Ramah and Gusti are all just one day older than their sister, birthed by their mother Lola in July last year.
Zoya’s biological mother did not display maternal behaviour towards her when she was born, so Zoya was moved to Oklahoma to have a better chance of enjoying social opportunities.
The family has been together for just over a year now, and as the footage suggests, they’re getting along just fine.
